About The State of Montana

Montana, the “Land of Shining Mountains”, is a Rocky Mountain state which is bordered closely to Canada, North and South Dakota, Wyoming and Idaho. Montana is the third least densely populated state in the country, possibly due to the state being made up of mostly Great Plains. Montana may not be the most populated state, but it is the leading state in the country for coal reserves, gold, copper and lead. It has been known to be titled the ‘Treasure State” due to this great abundance of minerals. Not only do tourists visit Montana to find gold and silver, they come to camp and view the beautiful mountains, lakes and glaciers in the Glacier National Park.

State of Montana Drug Testing News

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2016 Montana had a rate of 4.2 deaths per 100,000 persons, or 42 deaths, which is the lowest rate in over a decade. These deaths were all opioid-related overdoses with half due to prescription opioids and the other half due to synthetic opioids, which includes the very deadly drug fentanyl.

In 2015, for every 100 persons, Montana providers wrote opioid prescriptions for 90 people. This is more than the national average rate of 70 opioid prescriptions per 100 persons, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

It is no secret that drug overdose deaths are on the rise nationally, with it being the third leading cause of injury-relate death in Montana according to Montana’s Department of Public Health and Human Services.

FAQ's About Drug Testing in Montana

Drug detection factors

The length of time that a drug is detectable in the system depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • the type of test
  • dose
  • tolerance
  • potency
  • metabolism
  • the existence of medical conditions

Drug detection times

Please use these figures as a guide only:

  • Alcohol: 3-5 days in urine, 10-12 hours in blood
  • Amphetamines: 1-3 days in urine and around 12 hours in blood
  • Barbiturates: 2-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Benzodiazepines: 3-6 weeks in urine and 2-3 days in blood
  • Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood
  • Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood
  • Heroin: 3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood
  • LSD: 1-3 days in urine and up to 2-3 hours in blood

  • Methadone: 3-4 days in urine and 24-36 hours in blood
  • Morphine: 2-3 days in urine and 6-8 hours in blood

Drug detection in hair

Drugs or their metabolites may be detectable in hair. Hair grows at a rate of approximately 1cm per month so depending on the length of hair it may be possible to determine drug use over recent months.

A urine drug test, also known as a urine drug screen or a UDS, is a painless test. It analyzes your urine for the presence of certain illegal drugs and prescription medications. The urine drug test usually screens for:

  • amphetamines
  • methamphetamines
  • benzodiazepines
  • barbiturates
  • marijuana
  • cocaine
  • PCP
  • methadone
  • opioids (narcotics)

Alcohol can also be included in screening tests, but it’s usually detected through breath tests rather than urine screens.

A urine drug test can help a doctor detect potential substance abuse problems. After a drug test identifies drugs you may be misusing, doctors can help you start a treatment plan. Taking urine drug tests throughout substance abuse treatment helps to ensure that the plan is working and that you’re no longer taking drugs.

Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood.

Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood.

Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.

Heroin:3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.

It is broken down and excreted through your urine, making it detectable with urine drug testing for up to five days. Hair drug testing timelines have windows of up to 90 days.

Negative results are usually received within 24 hours; however, a positive screen will require further testing that may take a few days up to one week. If the initial screen is negative, a medical review officer (MRO) will typically contact the employer with the results.

If your urine is being tested only for a urinalysis, you can eat and drink normally before the test. If you‘re having other tests at the same time, you may need to fast for a certain amount of time before the test.
